Webinar: Groundwater and Climate Adaptation in the Bengal Basin
Stretched over vast areas in eastern India and Bangladesh, the Bengal basin is home to over 230 million people. For centuries, its ample surface and groundwater sources have sustained agricultural livelihoods that support a bulk of the population in the region. However, they are now increasingly vulnerable to the ever-growing human demand for freshwater, and climate variability.
In a webinar on July 17 (1100 GMT, click here for local timings), hydrogeologist Dr Mohammad Shamsudduha (University College London) will discuss some of these threats; and assess select strategies to recharge aquifers and adapt groundwater use to minimize the impact of future shocks in the Bengal basin.
The webinar is free to attend and open to all. For further details about the topic, Dr Shamsudduha and how to attend, please visit www.thewaterchannel.tv/webinar
Hope to see some of you there!
